Schnitzel Sandwich.

Not in Germany.


One of my favorite things to order at a pup at home is a Schnitzel sandwich. With crispy, crackling bread, and mustard. Yet, usually the description is better that the real thing. So as I departed for Germany, Bavaria in particular, I could not wait to sink my teeth into one, sure it would be the best on I have ever had. Now the schnitzel was everything I dreamed of. We had both pork and veal varieties. Although veal is the only "real" schnitzel according to the locals I met. We had some the size of a medium pizza at Pizza Hut. We had some stuffed with sausage an liver. We found good ones at famous places like Augstiner (pictured) and tiny places in Shwabing. What we did not find was a sandwich. Not on the menu. I even asked at one place and I believe I offended the waiter. But we really did not see sandwiches of any kind on the lunch menus. People came in sat down and had a full meal complete with beer. Not just tourists but locals. I kind of liked this. They lingered and ate and drank beer at reserved tables. And we did the same. We did find one on a menu at the bar in the airport hotel in Frankfurt. It was just like the pathetic schnitzel sandwiches back home. I had the hamburger.
